“ The Best First Day in Tokyo! ”

If you’re looking for a guide in Tokyo, and Kaneo is available, book him ASAP! He is the best of the best! I’ll start out by saying that it would have taken my husband and myself a full week to do all the things we did with Kaneo in just one day. This is not an exaggeration. I based my initial requests to Kaneo on my “Lonely Planet” guidebook’s “must do” list. We were able to do all of them, plus several more sites and activities. By booking this tour with Kaneo on our first full day in Tokyo, we were able to be more relaxed with the rest of our days there. Taking the pressure off the rest of our days in Tokyo was an invaluable result of our tour with Kaneo. I must mention Kaneo’s awesome itinerary PDFs that he sent leading up to our trip. These files included his own personal ph... read more

Kaneo:

Thank you for your kind and long review of my guide. I am very happy to know you enjoyed my guide so much as to evaluate it very high. I also feel happy to know I could show you some of good things of Japan, including our “Omotenashi” mind. I also appreciate your kindness to bring me a precious souvenir and a letter. Best regards, Kaneo

“ Excellent guide and well worth booking Kaneo’ ”

Kaneo planned out our route and day with precision as we went to many of the places you would want to see. An excellent guide that took the time to ensure we were happy. Always smiling and a great attitude that my 11 year old son and I were very happy with. I’d book him again no question.

Kaneo:

Thank you for your excellent review. I am really happy to hear you enjoyed my guide, inspite of a chilly cold weather. The weather is getting better. I believe you can enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan. Best regards Kaneo Uetake

“ Walking tour of the Port of Yokohama ”

From our first contact Kaneo was professional and easy to work with. We were a group of 6 on our tour. One of the things he recommended we do was a stop at a convenience store for a snack. He assisted us in purchasing "rice balls" (really a triangle) and beverage. We walked to a beautiful area overlooking the water and enjoyed the view and our snack. Several in our group were hesitant about eating the rice balls, but all were pleasantly surprised and glad they had gone along with the group. In my research I found that Yokohama is the sister city to San Diego, CA, USA, where we had lived for 17 years. They each have special statue commemorating this. Kaneo located it and made sure we saw it as we returned to our cruise ship thru the beautiful park it was in. He was quick to suggest addition... read more

Kaneo:

Thank you for your long and precise review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed my guide. Yokohama is my home town, but I learned much about it when I prepared for your trip. You are really interested in lots about Yokohama, including historical ones, which stimulated me to explore Yokohama more. Thanks again. Kaneo

“ Wonderful Experience ”

A great experience with Kaneo—He was very proactive up to the trip with many emails and consideration for us for the tour plan (rain and sun plan)—He was extremely flexible and willing to change to last minute location and plan —with two small kids it was not easy walking around. We learned much from Kaneo about history and culture and having a personal touch added a special perspective for Tokyo, something we wouldn’t otherwise have. Thank you Kaneo for a wonderful time.

Kaneo:

Dear Han Thank you for your warm review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed our Tokyo tour in spite of the sudden weather change. Your family are so good and friendly that even rain waited until you enjoyed outside walking tour. Kaneo
